March 25-29, 2015, New Orleans
The 29th annual festival features “literary discussions, theater, music and food events.”
There’s a poetry contest, a short story contest and a one-act play contest.
There’s also a popular Stanley and Stella yelling contest!
Check out their website for further information:
I just published three more stories on QuarterReads:
Marilyn Monroe Will Have Her Own Room
The Pink Lady
Suicide is Not Your Friend
All three of these are short stories and can be found under General/Literary Fiction. In this category, select Most Recent.
You can also search by author and/or by title. QuarterReads bills itself as “A Short Read at a Fair Price.”
The site allows you to read the beginning of a story for free, and if you want to purchase it through PayPal, the stories are 25 cents each. (40 reads for 10 bucks. 80 reads for 20 bucks) You can also tip a writer an additional 25, 50, 75 cents or even a dollar!
Come on now, I have 725 followers on Capitare a Fagiolo and Twitter, if everyone joined QuarterReads, that’s a lot of stories you can read anytime anywhere anyhow and a lot of new writers you can discover!
